The Ocean Cleanup Project

Remember last week when I shared an article by JoAnna Wendel about how pollution, especially plastic, was impacting one of the Pitcairn islands, namely Henderson Island. Thus, making many of us feel hopeless about the future of the environment and life itself. Well, it appears that some persons, namely Boyan Slat and The Ocean Cleanup team are not just waiting for people to stop polluting, but have actually developed a way to improve the quality of life and save the planet by allowing natural ocean currents, together with a clever device, to clean up plastics in the world’s oceans.

With cleanup trials expected to commence in 2018, it is estimated that half of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch will be removed in five years time. Persons can read  up more on this innovation on the website The Ocean Cleanup.

 

Happy reading guys :).
